in the united states had to be ground and because of money and power and they always say van dare was like family to bush. we're dealing with these leaders that making deals back home deals with people and then all of the sudden they come back you know and roost here and then you wonder why we're being attacked. we're spending our own money to give this money to these people for energy to come back and kill us with our own money. when we going to wake up? you know? it's like we're being directed in one way and then when we make deals with these people they're suppose to be the good guy and look what happens. host: thanks for the call. "washington post" says al qaeda benefits for decades worth of miss stepped in yemen. first of all u.s. commandos are trained encounter tactics. many say the war could arrive too late to change the trajectory in yemen. since the u.s.s coal attacked the nation has been past toward the illusion that the government is weak to control swats in the country. it's stretched thin and separatist movement in the south. it's got high employment unemployment rate and al
. >> your honor, you said in an interview you were worried about the direction the united states was taking away from capitalism and with the government government, more towards socialism. how do you feel now? >> there was a book written about islam called what went wrong. i think the united states deserves another book. what went wrong politically, economically and financially. they began with a bubble and then ended up with another bubble. the -- i think the united states needs to restudy all -- and evaluate what happened in the past decade or maybe 20, 30 years. i'm not sure the you states is -- they're down but not out. the potential is there but you need to look inside and see what you can do on many areas, politically, economically, financially, et cetera. >> i had steve forbes here earlier. you're featured in their annual, one of the richest in the world, number 19. we quibble over you're worth $21 billion or $25 billion. >> i don't really -- i don't dwell on that. i keep to mr. forbes. >> what do you think about president obama? >> i think he needs more time. clearly on his plate, t
the rhetoric. >> do you think, mr. murray, that barack obama, the president of the united states, his being in boston, him being up there on the stump, is that going to help? is that really going to wake up those who might think, wait a minute, we've got to go vote on news. >> i think it does. it brings attention to how important this race is. and what is at stake. literally the agenda of the president. you showed senator kennedy and he's someone who is strong in his beliefs and fought for it. but he also was able to reach out to the no child left behind and in certain areas. isn't it unfortunate that other americans haven't been able to offer that compromise that senator kennedy offered to former president george bush on issues of education and other types of things? we've got a republican minority that is really trying to obstruct the will of the voters and no one knows more about this than you do. where does the middle class and pushing all of the same rhetoric that dick cheney and george bush did for so many years? >> barack obama hasn't done anything to eliminate the middle class in ma
and reconstruction of how we deliver primary secondary education in the united states. and that's exactly what this panel is going to be discussing. very interesting papers on exactly that point by john chubb and steve wilson. and two inspired discussants. and without further ado, let me just say the presenters have 12 minutes each, the discussants 10 minutes each and if everybody is brisk we will have time for some conversation and discussion. take it away, john chubb. >> good morning. this morning and in the first panel you heard about mostly operational savings. now we're going to switch to the topic of educational opportunities. the country for the last two years has been going through the worst recession since the great depression. and every industry has been under enormous, enormous pressure to change. education is not unique in that regard. i want to start with an example. to illustrate this. the state of hawaii, like many other -- every other state in the nation has been under enormous pressure to try to deal with its budget gaps. it came to the decision last summer that it would balan
started in earnest in the late 1940's, we became very much a war that in the 1950's the united states of the soviet union were locked in to an existential crisis. it was a sort of stable crisis over the years, but a crisis nonetheless. we chatted a enormous nuclear power. we each have the ability to destroy the other country. and tonight, destroying most of the world. so we produced what was called a balance of terror, were both leaders on both sides, whenever there was a real crisis did not ever want to be pushed to a point of having to use nuclear weapons. and that governs the way we thought about our policy in almost every part of the world. now as a reporter in that environment, and as they moscow correspondent, and i remember i was the moscow correspondent during some of the most acute berlin crises, during the cuban missile crisis, and a number of others as well in the middle east. i believe now that i thought then that in pursuing my story, i wanted us to win. i didn't want the soviet union to gain and manage over the united states. i don't know that i literally wrote stories i
in from around the world. >> people of haiti will have the full support of the united states. >> extensive team fox coverage of the horror in haiti. it's likely to become the greatest humanitarian crisis in this part of the world in decades. there is no way to know how many people lost their lives in that 7.0 quake. estimates of the death toll are all over the map, so we won't even guess. you heard the government prediction. tonight witnesses on the ground are describing the destruction as unimaginable. some of the images coming into our news room are predictably graphic. amateur video shows how the earth just opened up, flattening much of the capital, port-au-prince, a city of 2 million people. witnesses report human bodies are being piled in the streets. survivors tell us you can hear the cries of people and children trapped in the rubble on every corner. there is no equipment to unearth them, no first responders to help them, and tonight no relief aid to give them, no light even to see them. the united nations says the main prison in the capital collapsed. the police chief says more tha
that a nigerian was being prepared for attacks in the united states on the homeland. my understanding is the least one of those intersects i think there were several specifically mentioned umar farouk abdulmutallab, the first two names. if you put it together with the fact this suspect's own father and not just anyone off the street as it has been stated by some in the intelligence community but a respected nigerian banker went physically to the embassy and talked to not one agency but to, the department and central intelligence agency and wasn't in missing person report. he said he was conservative his son, he's in yemen, and the nsa intercepted background. follow those meetings with written communications and telephone calls. we know that yemen is a hotbed of terrorism. apparently intelligence community didn't receive a possibility al qaeda and the arab peninsula might attack the homeland which is the story is another failure of imagination and it seems al qaeda is fixation on aviation system all of it seems to me not just in retrospect but before the effect of to have been enough to put on high
to establish a good relationship with the president of the united states because the united states is so a important to our vital interests, economic, security interests. they are our best ally and closest neighbor. they are our very best friend in the world as well and we should not forget that. we have established a good relationship. we have been working to align our approach is on a number of economic and environmental issues. i enjoy working with president obama. i do not envy him. his challengers are much greater than mine. they have so many more global responsibilities dain canada but the problems with the economy, health care, you name it, there frankly so much more. i do not envy his position. as i have said to my american friends, we are here to try and be helpful while protecting our own interests. >> you were recently in china. let's get your perception of the premier who seemed to give you a dressing down for taking so long to come. they are in very powerful players. when was your perception? >> we attend international summits quite regularly and i have had a chance to have
him into the united states and britain. so this is the kind of threat where it's maybe an individual now rather than in one particular cell that al qaeda can utilize in this type of aircraft attack. >> there's still a lot of unfinished work today-to-do for the obama administration in reforming the way intelligence is shared inside the u.s. bureaucracy for looking at the problem of signal to noise in the system, wrefb information is shared, how do you distinguish reliable and important information from false reporting and misleading reporting. there's... anyone who works in the system who deals with threat reporting testifies that there is an enormous amount of noise in the system. and even if you share the noise, that doesn't actually create the clarity you need to act against real threats. >> yemen is a country's in great chaos at the moment. there's a civil war in the north draining off a lot of military resources at the moment. there's a separate insurgency which is increasingly violent in the south. the government is running out of money as it loses oil exports and so i think wha
to be a sustained policy after the first action, does the united states then support future actions or does it say never again, that this cannot occur again? all the while dealing with the aftermath of then is really strike and the implications that entail. finally, if this does not come to pass, and iran, diplomacy does not work in israel does not strike then we are going to be focusing a large part of the coming year and afterwards on confidence-building and reassurance among our allies as we try to build a containment regime to deal with nuclear iran. i would raise the question one of the main challenges we will face in confidence building is how to convince the allies that a country that was unable to prevent iran from achieving the outcome we defined as unacceptable, that is acquiring nuclear weapons, will also be able to have the willpower and resolve to deter nuclear iran and we will face challenges in our theater engagement strategy and trying to build a containment architecture to do with nuclear iran if that comes to pass. just a couple of quick comments about the whole issue of strategi
. >>> the president of the united states getting ready to address the nation from the white house. as soon as he goes to the microphone, you'll hear what he has to say on the failed terror attack in detroit, outside detroit on christmas day. we'll go there live, you'll hear everything. in the meantime, let's check in with jack cafferty. he has today's "cafferty file." >> some say it's past time to begin profiling passengers. the u.s. is demanding better koreaning from places like iran, pakistan, saudi arabia, yemen, the usual suspects. the screening is to include things like full body scans, patdowns, searches of carry-on bags, and explosive detection technology. from the school of common sense comes the idea it makes sense to more thoroughly screen passengers who come from cunning where they may have been exposed to radical islamic teaching, but improved technology isn't the answer. the head of security for el al, says we need better questioning of passengers. he suggests hiring well-educated, highly trained agents, who know what to look for. he says profiling isn't about single out certain ethnic g
of those who have been arrested, engaged in or having committed terrorist acts in the united states in the last month were in communication with persons on the internet. they never met the necessarily in person but they were highly influenced by their messaging. i gave a speech about a week ago really defending strongly internet freedom but i also pointed out that the internet is a neutral tool, and increasingly we are having to face, whether it is the u.s., u.k. or yemen, the threats coming from beyond our borders that cannot be, as david said come up ginned on any event in a particular place. it is an accumulation of influences, and i think we have to look more thoughtfully at this and i think there is a role for the free media to play because we need a countermessage to young people, who for whatever reason, seek out these voices of the extremism, and i think that is something that governments need help in doing on both a technological basis and in terms of the media's narrative. >> we will definitely take another question but thank you very much indeed. [laughter] >> on tomorrow
and ally to united states and the partnership between our countries is -- a new beginning, based on mutual respect and mutual interest that the president called for in cairo. we will discuss how to deepen and broaden our partnership. among the matters that we consulted on -- the situation in yemen is a top concern. how can we work together and with others to stabilize yemen? assist in securing its borders and providing for its people in combating al qaeda? the instability in yemen is a threat to regional and global stability. and we are working with qatar and others to think of the best way forward to duck -- to try to deal with the security concerns. certainly, we know that this is a difficult set of challenges but they have to be addressed. i also thank the prime minister for their efforts to facilitate an end to the crisis in darfur and to promote security and stability in the broader middle east as well as africa. we both have a shared, mutual interest in moving towards a comprehensive peace between israelis and palestinians. we share the goal of an amendment -- an independent and viab
immigrants living here in the united states. because of the earthquake they will be granted 18 months of temporary protective status. >> tps is what it's called. while haitians here see it as an opportunity to push for changes, our ed lavandera says it's not an open invitation for haitians to come over. >> reporter: thousands of haitian immigrants, many in the united states illegally, are applying for what's called temporary protective status or tps. it allows haitian nationals to live in the u.s. legally for the next 18 months. for years, haitian americans lobbied for tps but many advocates now see an opportunity to make bigger changes, to ease years of immigration restrictions towards haitians coming to the united states. >> this now is an opportunity for haiti to change. this is the time right now. and many people this is the last time. a lot of people feel like this is our time. >> reporter: horrifying images like these have been common in the ocean waters between the united states and haiti. it's a dangerous and deadly journey for many who try to make it to american shores. every
in the wake of this, of course, very frightening event that happened on christmas day in the united states when there was a failed bomb attack. people's nerves are very much on edge. there is also a dark humor that permeates some sectors of society. we've heard of different people making jokes in different airports and it is not a joking matter right now. so we know that these people may have been drinking. they've been arrested. >> excuse me for just a second. sky news is interviewing live. they're the fox news equivalent for london. listen. >> did they, from your viewpoint, make their way directly to that passenger? >> in an instant. it happened straight away. they were very efficient and effective in their arrest. >> what reaction from him when he was made aware of what was happening to him? >> he seemed pretty calm. there was no shouting, no screaming. i think he sort of gave in straight away. >> reporter: you say two arrests were made. did you see the second person being taken from the aircraft? >> i didn't see the second person. i heard that through some other passengers on board. >>
full time members of my staff. some in lonn, some in the united states. we used our proper names, told our back grounds. the people we met with, counter parties on the russian side used phony names. one was stations in seattle, silicon valley, one in washington. so, the game that got played is to thwart anything we would do. this is the group we had to work with. there we are looking in the open source trying to gain the cooperation from these other people, where we got absolutely nowhere. they played with us. but what did work is a lot of people came forward with information. some accurate, some inaccurate. so you have to parse through it. >> charlie: what was the most interesting information that came forward? >> the single most intriguing were a series of commodity related businesses that traded off getting commodities out of russia. things like a moa pneumonia, fertilizer. these were basic money laundering operations for them. they operated all over the world. when these things happen some of it always sticks to of the people responsible for distributing it. it doesn't all go to th
to repeal don't ask/don't tell that allows -- that prevents gays from serving openly in the united states military. >> he will do that straight out, and has been under more pressure from gay and lesbian americans and others who support that policy to be more aggressive. he will ask the congress to repeal don't ask/don't tell, and will tell the congress that comprehensive immigration reform is a top priority. the interesting question and expectation is will he put in the pressure on the congress? last year it was pass health care and pass it this year. the president did not get that goal, did not get that critical wish, and they are much more reluctant at the white house this time, understanding the new political math and b, we are closer with each passing minute to the midterm elections. it makes democrats reluctant to touch sensitive issues. >> stand by, because we're going to continue this conversation. i want to about bring in some members of the best political team in television. if you listen to what the president says and thinks, it's clear he feels totally frustrated by the balloon

obama has learned is that it is really hard to be president of the united states. [laughter] really, is a nightmare of a job. his american power is about two contradictory things. on the one thing, -- on the one hand, as a global, leading power, we are trying to keep the status pretty much in quo. on the other hand, there is this seedings source of capitalist renewal -- seething source of capital is renewal. we are causing as much trouble when we are inventing the internet as when we are invading iraq. we are blowing up the status quo at the same time that we are trying to defend it and the president of the united states is caught at the board tax of these conflicting issues. president obama -- at the vortexes of these conflicting issues -- the vortexes of these conflicting issues. use of president obama having to wrestle with all of these tensions. could you imagine the nerve it took to walk into closed-door sessions, blowing up diplomatic protocol. in doing this, not knowing if it was born to work. -- going to work. i wrote about an important moment for president obama. this will
of state hillary clinton meets with the 18th president. she assured that the united states would bring medical supplies and food and continue to help with rescue efforts. this is about 10 minutes. >> the press conference will be very difficult because of the noise of the motors. i think mrs. clinton for her visit, which shows, once again, her interest and support for haiti. since the earthquake, president obama has clearly stated how much help the united states and other countries should give to haiti. the last initiative of putting the two last proceeding presidents together to form a fund is, again, a sign of great support. the u.s. aid is already on the territory. i just visited a victim who has been, since five days, taken care of by the military and american medical support in haiti. mrs. clinton's visit really warms our heart today, but especially to reassure the priorities and needs and the coordination and needs to be done since the earthquake. i will not talk on behalf of mrs. clinton, i will let her express what the american government wants to do towards haiti. >> first, --
going to haiti on saturday, is there -- what role should the united states, or could the united states play in helping the country's restructure politically and economically, or can the united states help in that? >> i think actually, only the united states can really do that. this is such a massive effort. obviously on the front end here, this is a humanitarian effort on a huge scale. and the coordination effort for that -- for humanitarian assistance will have to be led by the united states and the u.s. military as i think secretary clinton and i know that the obama administration is focused on. long term for economic development they will have to play the same role. i don't believe that?xmoney, yo know, that financial systems, and certainly we should you know try to get as much as we can, and i know that the haitians will be grateful for all of the financial assistance they get, but i don't think that will be the key. i think the key will be coordinating partnerships, both among the donors and with the haitian government. and i know that the people in the obama administration are tr
respected private business, revered private business more than we have now in the united states, that other nations have more pro-growth policies than we do, are more natural resource oriented than we are, less tax oriented, less exposure to budget deficits that we do here in america. remember the other night anna dark yoe jim hackett told us ghana and algeria are easier to deal with than the united states in doing business. algeria. read "savage war and peace," watch the. these are more investor friendly than the u.s.? if china is better than capitalist america, why shouldn't ghana be a hot bed of investment? what's safe for the united states? what's safer? we're going to talk about developed countries after the break. that's called a tease in tv speak. now i want to highlight the safest developing ones with terrific stocks to shock you -- that's right, i'm going to shock you out of your complacency. brazil, china and peru. that's right, you heard me. brazil, china and peru are all safe countries to put your money in. in many ways safer than the united states, because they do not favor a d
